### Abstract

This paper demonstrates the ease with which broadband array problems can be generalised from their well-known, straightforward narrowband equivalents when using polynomial matrix formulations. This is here exemplified for the Capon beamformer, which presents a solution to the minimum variance distortionless response problem. Based on the space-time covariance matrix of the array and the definition of a broadband steering vector, we formulate a polynomial MVDR problem. Results from its solution in the polynomial matrix domain are presented.
